Saturday Sketch Challenge #265

Hello Stamping Friends! How are you this evening? We hope that you are doing fine and have some time carved out for this week's Saturday Sketch Challenge from the Stamping 411 Operators!

Before we get too far into the post, I need to share an announcement with you! This week is the beginning of the Stamping 411 "vacation". Now don't panic ... we'll still have a weekly sketch challenge. However, from now until the first week of September, we won't be posting any "extras" -- Color Challenges, Whatever Posts, etc. And the Operators will not be leaving comments on your blog during this time period. Well, some of us might but you probably won't see as much of us as possible. We need a little down time and thought this would be a good time to take some.

So, be sure and come back each week for the Sketch Challenge and to see the fabulous inspiration projects that the operators create! And look forward to some really cool things when we get back to full steam in September!

Now, for this week's sketch ...

It's pretty straight-forward this week. Just begin with your regular Card Base (5.5 x 8.5", score and fold). Add a strip in the middle (2" wide) and then a large circle or other shape! Now, you thought this was going to be more difficult this week, didn't you! Fooled ya!
And now it's YOUR turn! We can't wait to see where your creativity takes you this week! Just scroll down to see the inspiration projects from the Operator's this week! Click on their name to find out more information about their project.


Are you ready to play along? We hope that you are! Here are our rules for play.
  1. Make a card using your Stampin' Up Supplies! 
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum 
  3. Post a link to the free linky tool below (please point the link to your post and NOT just your blog). 
  4. Have some fun and leave comments for each other (and for the operators if you like their work). ~ Everyone loves comments! 
  5. Please note, we reserve the right to remove links with non-Stampin' Up! product, "sales pitches", links to online stores, or requests to join your team. We're here to have fun, learn from one another and share. We hope you join us this week and play along with this sketch! But don't delay our links will close at 8AM on Thursday morning Eastern Standard Time. I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Blessings, Gretchen
